GREENVILLE, N.C. --
Dominique Davis scored on a 1-yard keeper while Damon Magazu intercepted Russell Wilson's final pass to help East Carolina beat North Carolina State 33-27 in overtime Saturday. Davis threw for 376 yards and two touchdowns for the Pirates (4-2), who survived a thrilling finish with their instate rival in front of a sellout and record home crowd. East Carolina ran out to a 21-0 first-quarter lead only to see the Wolfpack rally to take the lead late in the fourth quarter on a field goal from Josh Czajkowski before staging its own comeback.
Michael Barbour's field goal with 1:04 left sent the game into overtime, where Davis put the Pirates ahead for good by bouncing off a pile of tacklers on a sneak and falling across the goal line.
The Wolfpack (5-2) couldn't answer, with Wilson forcing a pass over the middle to Jarvis Williams that Magazu grabbed at the goal line.
